Hyper Light Drifter PC A patch adding a 60fps option and a boss rush mode was all the encouragement we needed to return to Heart Machine’s stylish adventure. Accustomed as we were to the original refresh rate, it took us a while to adjust, but it’s an option that will be embraced by new players; likewise a Newcomer difficulty setting, which offers a less punishing challenge while locking out a handful of Achievements.
Rainbow Six Siege PS4 Siege continues to improve, but some undesirable elements are picking at Ubisoft’s work. Too often we find ourselves one of the last survivors in a round, carrying our team to victory with patient stalking, when we’re voted out of the match because our fallen teammates aren’t prepared to wait. Worse, being kicked nets you a 15-minute ban from ranked matches. What a really fun treat.
Doom PS4 After Doom’s dazzling campaign, its multiplayer felt rather flat. Some of the blame for that discrepancy lies with the original, rather unrefined map designs. Doom’s first DLC pack, Unto The Evil, adds three new maps – Cataclysm, Ritual and Offering – which fare much better. More memorable and tightly designed, the trio bring some much-needed new life to Doom’s online fragfests. While still far from essential, things are certainly headed in the right direction.
